Thank you everyone. He was awesome. I was so impressed. Now it's just the fun of waiting around, lol. 

In Topic: How Do You Afford It?

Thank you! I'm thinking I'm actually good to go for the most part. No cast iron or teflon. I'll get rid of my wooden spoons. I do have glass measuring bowls/cups. I have two blenders. One I have used just for my smoothies: nothing gluten there. I'll just replace as I can. 


And quite a bit of my bakeware is glass, thank goodness. 


Thank you, everyone.

Thank you! That is a bit more reassuring. When I first mentioned it to my daughter, she was like "Uh, that's going to be expensive. Can't we just clean it really well?" I am also hoping to not get withdrawals! I am in the final weeks of classes at school and so do not want to get sick on top of it. Guess time will tell. And the way I figure it, I've already been feeling bad for this long, what's a bit longer? 

In Topic: Blood Work Done: Going Gluten Free?

That's a good idea, thank you. I'll do it that way as well. I will ask my dr. about it Monday when she calls to see if I should be doing anything else. But I think I'll just stick to the smallest amount I can until the endoscopy, if they do it after I get my blood results. 

In Topic: Doctor Says I Should Take Anti-Anxiety Meds...................

Fire your GP. NOW. Any "doctor" who wants to push pills on you instead of getting to the root of the problem should be stripped of their license to practise IMO.

I agree with this completely! I went through this years ago when I had a hysterectomy at 24. I had just quit nursing 2 weeks before it and my hormones were already nuts. I went to dr complaining on hot flashes, dryness, etc. He wanted to put me on depression meds. I told him no, found a new dr and had testing done that proved I was in menopause! My dr now is amazing. In the 2 years I have seen her, she has NEVER pushed meds on me, preferring testing and alternative approaches. I'm sorry you are going through this, but I agree, it's time for a new doctor.
